Oral History

In this weeks reading by Della Pollack I was intrigued on the ideas of oral history performances cultivating “theories of the flesh”.  “the root metaphors and ideas about the world that both emerge from and “bridge the contradictions” of experience”  (Pollack , 4) The call for an aesthetic of detachment and contact was also refreshing. I also like the idea that the politics of oral history represent the politics of the near claiming a purpose.

This reminds me of a song that erykah Badu did called Window seat.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9hVp47f5YZg
